    Because What Goes Around...

    I do believe in getting what you can out of what comes your way. Yeah I'm an opportunist. I don't think that 'everything happens for a reason' But I do think you can find 'reasons for everything'. Do you catch my drift? Cm

    There can be no doubt that serendipity exists and that is very important. The discovery of something you were not looking for is as normal as it is extraordinary. I have an eclectic mind and my phantasy makes me wander from one subject,or one field to another. Reading about...
